Just a reminder we do have Saturday School this Saturday for Tracks 1, 2, and 4.  Lunch will not be served, but students are allowed to bring a snack.  We will dismiss at 12:00.

See you tonight!

Don’t forget about the PTA General Board meeting tonight at 6:00 in the Media Center.  The PTA will elect their new board members.  Immediately following the meeting, the DRMS PTA will host a Social Media event: “I posted on social media and you’ll never guess what happened next!”  This event will be led by our Instructional Technology Expert, Luke Miles, and a DRMS parent, Patrick McNeil.  For more information, read this.

Attention All DRMS Parents

Staff appreciation week is just around the corner!!  Please help us thank the teachers and staff at DRMS!  We are trying to put together enough gift cards to give each staff member a small gift card and a special treat from all of the parents.

We are asking everyone to please send in gift cards.  Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated, however we prefer they be in $5.00 or $10.00 denominations.  For example if you want to contribute $20.00 in gift cards send four $5.00 cards or two $10.00 cards.  That way we can make sure to have enough to treat each staff member.

Please send gift cards in by May 2nd in an envelope addresses to Donna Reed.  We will collect them from her and distribute them with a small gift during staff appreciation week.  Thank you for all you do to honor the teachers and staff at DRMS.

Sincerely,
Pamela Mundra and
Ginger Smith
